President Barack Obama will make his first trip to China in November to boost relations with the Asian nation, the new U.S. ambassador to Singapore said Saturday morning.

Obama will attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum from Nov. 14-15 in Singapore, according to Ambassador Jon Huntsman, an ex-Mormon missionary who was sworn in Aug. 11.
